S...Is For Sounds

Have you ever noticed how different sounds can spark a memory?  Or how different sounds make you feel, well...different?  

When I hear the ocean I feel calm, peaceful and I'm reminded of living near the beach in Brookings, Oregon.  When I hear my 16yr old son J say "creeper" in his scary voice, I get chills and totally weird out.  The sound of rain prompts me to turn off all audio sounds as well as any light source, sit back and relax.  

Does this happen to you? 

If so, what are the sounds, how do they make you feel and/or what do they remind you of?

Have a blessed day!  

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*

Hi Shannon. The chimes are such a nice touch. A friend gave me a set of chimes one Christmas and I treasure them--she has a short time to live and said she wanted me to remember her every time the wind moves them.
She loves the Lord and I have such comfort in that knowledge. Your post is lovely.
